Frankly, Frannie is coming out on May 27th. Round up some kids and force them to buy buy buy!


The thing I liked about the Frankly, Frannie marketing campaign was that in promoting the book, librarians around the country were sent the main character’s resume. This is a middle grade series about a girl who desperately wants to be a grown-up with a job. It’s an early chapter book, and it’s kind of a relief to read one that has a premise I haven’t read a million times before. Besides, talk about a great concept for girls. I can relate to this character too. When I was a kid I thought it was imperative to get a job ASAP post-college or you would obviously end up homeless or something. It’s a kid logic thing. This book seems to get that. The author, AJ Stern, may also be Fiona Rosenbloom of You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah. Woman of a thousand pseudonyms, that one.
